Plenary Speakers

Melissa Chen, Microsoft Research

Melissa Chase is a researcher in the cryptography group at Microsoft Research Redmond. Her research focuses on defining and constructing cryptographic protocols and primitives, with an emphasis on provable security and privacy-motivated applications. She has been at Microsoft for 10 years; before that she received a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Brown University. She has worked in a variety of areas within cryptography, including anonymous credentials and electronic cash, attribute based encryption, and design of signature schemes and zero knowledge proofs.

Mitsuru Matsui studied mathematics and received the B.S. and M.S degrees from Kyoto University in 1985 and 1987, respectively. He joined Mitsubishi Electric Corporation in 1987 and has since been engaged in R&D of cryptography and information security. He earned the PhD in Information Science and Technology from the University of Tokyo in 2006. He is an executive fellow of Mitsubishi Electric

Vanessa Teague is a cryptographer at the University of Melbourne, specialising in online privacy and applied cryptography. She has been interested in election security ever since observing the Bush-Gore debacle first hand (which was several debacles ago). With an international team of cryptographers and statisticians, she has spent the last decade considering how Australian elections could benefit from using computers without exposing our democracy to widespread undetectable fraud. Still working on it. She also wastes a fair bit of time trying to explain to Australian public authorities that the people who point out security problems in important plans or projects are not usually the ones who deserve to go to jail.
